I don't see other choices. So given those 2 choices you posted...
Tetanus causes arrest of voluntary muscles. The heart does not volunteer itself to beat for you. So I'm going to have to say Aspiration pneumonia secondary to respiratory arrest.

Those r the only reasonable choises in the question.
Tetanus can cause both of these complications, but they r asking THE MOST COMMON CAUSE OF DEATH
